Former teacher, then for 25 years a professional photographer and international lecturer for Agfa, now a teacher again - Head of Photography at a UK College. BSc Lancaster (physics), BA Sussex (art history), MA Goldsmiths (contemporary imaging).
Lots of fun and student discovery. Adapting the old adage "give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, give a man a fishing rod and you feed him for a lifetime" ... in my approach to teaching this becomes "give a student a fish and you feed him for a day, give a student the desire and necessary skills and you will feed him for a lifetime". And in case you are wondering about the rod, he/she makes their own because they discover that they want to!

Having employed many photography graduates over the years I have always been amazed by their lack of both critical knowledge and technical skills. As such my teaching resources are applicable to a wide range of student age and ability because they are built around the assumptions that: 1) students start with zero or limited knowledge 2) They should be interesting and fun. 3) Theory should be introduced in context - it should be followed by 'real world' examples of its application.
